UPDATED: No. 4 BSC and Berry tie, 9-9

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Sunday's game between No. 4 Birmingham-Southern and Berry College has been ruled a 9-9 tie.

Playing in steady rain for the last hour of the game, Berry managed to plate four runs in the top of the 12th to pull ahead 13-9, but, since the game was being played to regulation and not under the halted game rule, those runs were wiped out after the field was determined to be unplayable and the umpires called the game.

Heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, the Panthers found themselves down 9-5 and it looked like Berry would take the series. After a Vikings pitching change, senior David Bourbonnais walked and then senior Casey Lambert doubled to left-center and Bourbonnais scored to cut it to 9-6. A ground-out by sophomore Jacob Drescher allowed Lambert to advance to third, and a sac-fly from junior Matt Brown plated Lambert and cut the lead to 9-7 with two outs. Junior Taylor McCracken then reached base on a Berry error before senior Jacob Mayfield tied the score with a home run over the right-field fence.

As weather and field conditions deteriorated, the teams played through the 10th and 11th innings with no score.
